challenges to us on the foreign policy and national security landscape. i thought that governor romney had a very strong moment in the debate, a very good moment when he tied together our domestic economy and our ability to sustain a strong military and a strong diplomacy overseas. he said in effect that if we have a failing economy at home we won't be able to afford a first-rate foreign policy. but i also think that this debate showed last night that there are very clear differences between those two despite, you know, the drift of governor room knee to the center last night. they have different life experiences and different world views. governor room knee there's a quality to the way he talks about foreign policy, it's more back to the future, restore american leadership, american greatness. president obama, i think recognizing the reality that we're operating in an era of limits that we are pressed financially, so you saw in libya in 2011 he pushed britain and france out to leadership of that nato operation to take down colonel kadafy. so very different world views. i think all the agr

. sprint may have a savior-- it could use help and money from softbank. sprint has been struggling for seven years-- a disastrous merger with nextel, and an expensive tab to modernize its wireless network. but sprint insisted today its talks with softbank are in the early stages. "although there can be no assurances that these discussions will result in any transaction or on what terms any transaction may occur, such a transaction could involve a change of control of sprint." reportedly, softbank would invest nearly $13 billion for a majority stake in sprint. that could go a long way to help sprint compete with rivals at&t and verizon, and pay for its investment in mobile broadband provider clearwire. >> i think the one piece of the puzzle with sprint that was always a little worrisome was their investment in clearwire. so to the extent that helps bolster clearwire, could make sprint an even better investment, but we'll have to see how this encapsulates clearwire, if it does at all. >> susie: michael bowen of pacific crest securities has been following this closely and joins us now
